Loved the architecture and the shopping opportunities to buy leather goods made locally. Everything is nearby, so a walking tour is definitely the way to go. I loved the local food and the cappuccino was totally addictive.

This central plaza is gorgeous. The highlights are the Duomo, the cathedral, tower and museum. A Firenze card is advised.

One of the best places in Florence to take amazing photos of the Cathedral, Baptistery, Dome, it's beautiful during the day but also at night with everything being light up.

Do not miss out on this when visiting Florence. There are so many choices in this great city to see. You need at least 3 days in Florence.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
